I come to this Friday’s sometimes because it is close to my house. I keep forgetting that their draft beer is stale or contamiated. They obviously do not clean the lines. I hate draft beer that taste like dish water.

Upon arrival, I asked the hostess if she could sit us at a booth. Since there were very few diners, I figured it would be no big deal. She sat us at a table. Oh well, we were in a hurry, so it didn't seem...More

In Manhattan in 1965, there was no place where people could go out to meet friends and make new ones in an environment that was at once both relaxed and yet exciting. Then, Alan Stillman opened Fridays as a way, he said, "to meet Pan Am stewardesses." Suddenly, there was a place with great food, new and exciting drinks and an electric energy. A place where bartenders mixed the environment just as well as they mixed drinks. In short, a place like nowhere else. Today, Fridays in Fort Walton Beach, FL is still America's most iconic bar and grill. We embrace and celebrate our heritage as a bar. One that just happens to serve killer food in an environment where it's always Friday.
